One day, during an evening class for adults, the psychology teacher entered the class and told students, `let’s all play a game’ the teacher asked one of the students too volunteer.  A lady, Aisha came forward the teacher asked her to write 30 names of most important people in her life on black board.

       Aisha wrote names of her family members, relative, friends, her colleagues and her neighbors, the teacher told her to erase three names that Aisha considered most unimportant. Aisha erased names of her colleagues. The teacher again told her to delete five more names. Aisha erased her neighbor’s names.

        This went on until there was just four names left on the blackboard. These are names of her mother, father, husband and the only son. The entire class became silent realizing that this wasn’t a game anymore for Aisha alone.

        Now the teacher told her to delete two more names it was a very difficult choice for Aisha she unwillingly deleted her parents’ names. `Please delete one more’ said the teacher. Aisha became very nervous and with trembling hands and tears in her eyes she deleted her son’s name. Aisha cried painfully, the teacher told Aisha to take her seat.

        After a while, the teacher asked why her husband?? The parents are the ones that nurtured her, the son is the one she gave birth to? And you can always find another husband!!! Total silence in the class. Everyone was curious to know her response. Aisha calmly and slowly said `one day my parents will pass away before me’ `my son may also leave me when he grows old, for his studies or business or whatever reason, the only one who will truly share his entire life with me is my Husband”.

       All the students stood up and applauded her for sharing this truth of life. This is true so always value your life partner, it’s not only for husbands but wives as well, God has united two souls and it’s on you now to nurture this relationship above all.
